The One You Want! The One You Need!
Sulma is a Garifuna, Latina, Black, Immigrant, and short woman raised in Hunts Point the Bronx.
Her experience as a checker of many boxes on many applications, her corporate experience, community advocate advocacy, activist, and mother led her to write award winning books that raises conversations about the explicit bias and implicit biases.
Her approach does not come from formal training on diversity and inclusion, but from formal life opportunities that have placed Sulma in rooms with white people who thought she was black (product of affirmative action), Spanish people that did not know she was Garifuna and black people that did not know she was Spanish.
Sulma is engaging and uses all of who she to find the commonality that exists in the human spirit when we implement love for all.
